If there’s two individuals that know summer better than anyone else, that would be Viceroy and Penguin Prison. Both artists are very familiar with summer tunes, having written more than their fair share of anthems over the years, and yet it still feels like something is missing: a collaboration, of sorts. Well, we’ve finally been given what we asked for!
Earlier today, the pair unveiled their new single, “The Life.” With an ebullient dance beat, a guitar arrangement that calls to mind Bachman-Turner Overdrive‘s “Let It Ride,” a shouting brass section and Glover’s flavourful vocals, it’s a summer song in every sense of the word. Just when we thought RAC and Matthew Koma would round-out our summer, Viceroy and Penguin Prison have given their dear old friends a run for their money with this undeniably catchy new tune.
